Ncase M1

rasesh

For the owners of the Ncase M1 pc case I had a question regarding it's acoustics.

I know it's a mini-itx case but what I wanted to know is more about it's side panels.

 

I've seen some video's of the Ncase M1 & noticed the side panels just clip on and they aren't really the sliding side door's which fit tight found on most cases so wanted to know if that is causing higher noise from the machine compared to cases with seal tight sliding side panels?

 

Thanks!

No, that would not make any difference.

The components you put inside are what makes a computer loud.

Im sure the tight sealed fit sliding door's make SOME difference though right compared to Ncase M1's side door's?

No, unless for some reason your panels are loose and cause rattling noises (which they should not be, I've head they are very stiff on the mounts), there is literally no difference.

If you own 1 can you tell me if I used a Noctua D9L cpu cooler [height of 110mm], can I fit a fan in front of it in the side panel fan mount position? 

The spec say max is 130mm cpu height but what if I get a 15mm slime fan?

The question is hard to answer unless someone owns one because the fan side mount is a little inside the case it's not like your mounting the fan on the side panel. 

Will it fit?

 

Thanks.

I see your apostrophe is trying to make a break for it!

There's no apostrophe on doors...and you need one for I'm.

Yeah it would because 110+15 = 125 which is less than 130 :)

Correct but 130mm max is from the side panel.

The panel for mounting the fan is tucked inside more then the side panel is.

Oh I see what you mean.

Worst case scenario you can just screw the fan in directly through the side panel, or use double sided tape.

I don't know how much the bracket offsets the fan, I would assume less than 5mm though.

Because it's between the NH-D9L being 110mm in height but being able to fit that extra exhaust or intake right in front of it or the 125mm NH-U9S.

 

The thing with the NH-U9S though is I'll have to make it exhaust the air out the top (if I want to use dual fans on it which I do) rather then the side which in my opinion is much better & it's what I want.

There are some people who fit the NH-U9S with 2 fans exhaust out the side but their mobo cpu socket location was a bit more on the right which helped with that but I'm not sure what the dimensions the mobo socket has to be to make that work.

I'll be using the Asus Z170i pro gaming. 

 

What do you think?

I think a down blowing cooler would perform better since the intake is on the side.

Even if you can fit a slim fan on the side, the top of the CPU cooler will be so close it will block most of the airflow.

Slim fans are already pretty bad on their own.

So you're telling me to intake from the top with the NH-U9S vertically instead of exhaust out the top with the vertical NH-U9S?

No, this is a down blowing cooler:

Hm, I see.

Wouldn't the back exhaust fan effect the side intake fan?

The exhaust fan would pull air out, and the side fan would pull air in.

What I mean is when the side intake fan is bringing in air won't the back exhaust fan take that air straight out interfering with the cpu getting that intake air?

No.

Plenty of people have that same config with perfectly fine temps.

What is the absolute best cpu cooler [air] I can put in the Ncase m1?

Without thinking about it's cost.

 

From my research so far the biggest & baddest cpu cooler for the Ncase m1 is the bequiet dark rock TF. 

 

Any suggestions?

I don't know what's the best air cooler you can fit in there, maybe someone else can answer or you can research other people's builds on the internet in that case.
